Leena Thomas’s senior year at boarding school begins with a shock: Frost House, her cozy dorm of close friends, has been assigned an unexpected roommate: confrontational, eccentric Celeste Lazar. But while Leena’s anxiety about a threat to her sanctuary proves valid, it becomes less and less clear whether the threat lies with her new roommate, within Leena’s own mind, or within the very nature of Frost House itself. Mysterious happenings in the dorm, an intense triangle between Leena, Celeste, and Celeste’s brother, and the reawakening of childhood fears, all push Leena to take increasingly desperate measures to feel safe. Frost is the story of a haunting. As to whether the demons are supernatural or psychological . . . well, which answer would let you sleep at night?

My Thoughts...
Leena thought her senior year at her boarding school would be perfect. Her and her friends are set to live in Frost house. The only problem is when they get there they have an extra roommate. Celeste, who is known to be a bit odd. It doesn't take long for things to start getting weird. Celeste's things start getting broken, and the room she and Leena share freaks her out while Leena developes an obsession with the closet in their room, and a very protective mindset of the room itself. Celeste stops sleeping and is covered in bruises she eventually changes room and Leena gets worse, she redecorates the room and basically starts sleeping in the closet. She is hearing voices, I'm not sure if the house itself was haunted or if Leena was just crazy. This story had its creepy moments and left me with alot of questions at the end. Was it Leena or was it the House? I guess it is one of those things that the author wants us to think about and come to our own conclusion. I for one just hope it was the house cause otherwise Leena was really just wacked out.  I had a hard time getting into this one and I struggled to finish it. All in all the story wasn't bad but this really wasn't the book for me. I gave this one 3 stars.
